Cold Steel bokken for training, wooden bokken and Japanese wooden swords

Battle-ready wood bokken. Our bokkens are made by specialists with years of experience in martial arts such as kenjutsu. We have wooden and polypropylene training swords. Some historical bokkens were highly decorated and inlaid with gemstones or painted with gold leaf. The bokken is the perfect weapon for practicing samurai sword fighting techniques. Nowadays, the bokken is mainly used for the practice of martial arts such as aikido, kendo, iaido, kenjutsu, jodo and nanbudo. It is a cheaper and safer substitute than the katana.


Buy an Iaito katana for training

The iaitō is the battle-ready variation of the katana. These katanas have a blunt edge so they can be used for martial arts such as aikido, kendo, iaido, kenjutsu, jodo and nanbudo. These katanas have a tempered blade which makes them fully functional. The tang construction and grip are made in the same way as other katanas. The first iaitō were created after the second world war to give people the opportunity to own a sword to practice budo with. We offer different types of iaito that differ from each other in weight, length and balance.
